14 Bikes You've Probably Never Seen - Riva Del Garda Bike Festival 2016

May 2, 2016
by Paul Aston  
The Riva Del Garda Bike Festival is a hotbed of the weird and wonderful. The major European brands may have been stealing the spotlight recently, but there are scores of smaller brands working away in the background. Here are fourteen brands and bikes you've probably never seen.




Bianchi

Bianchi- Bike Festival Riva del Garda

You may be familiar with the Bianchi brand and their road racing heritage but they also have a line of mountain bikes too.

Airstreeem

Airstream - Bike Festival Riva del Garda



Corratec

Corratec - Bike Festival Riva del Garda

Corratec
Corratec

This Corratec uses a 'shock for the shock.' Their engineer explained that suspension in general struggles to react to very high-frequency bumps, so they added this elastomer to help. The frame has 160mm of travel and the extra shock gives another 15mm of travel that works throughout the range to help with vibration damping.


Conway WME 827

Conway

Conway's WME can switch between 160 and 170mm of travel with a shock that is driven from both ends.

Conway



Stevens

Stevens' 140mm travel Whaka+ ES retails for €3459.


Simplon

Drossiger

Drossiger

Drossinger's 29er has 160mm of rear travel. The cutaway that makes space for the shock's piggy-back reservoir has been dubbed 'the ashtray.'

Rose's Prototype Granite Chief

Rose Granite Chief

This is a prototype version of Rose's Granite Chief but is very close to what the 2017 finished product will look like. There are a number of changes over the previous model including Boost hubs, improved internal cable routing, and longer lower and slacker geometry. It's also one of the first bikes we have seen specced with the new metric shock standard.

Centurion win the best bike name competition for 2016.



Alutech ICB 2.0

Alutech ICB 2.0

The ICB was crowd-designed by the readers of the fellows over at www.mtb-news.de. Alutech asked the forum-goers what they wanted and the result was 130mm of travel via single pivot with a linkage driven shock, 66.5º head angle, a wide range of sizes and plenty of attention to the details.



Votec

Votec- Bike Festival Riva del Garda

Votec's new VE Elite bike uses a flip chip to switch between 160mm or 170mm and two ride heights for each travel setting. In the low setting the head angle is 64.3º with the 180mm travel Lyrik. This model is available direct from their website for €3099.

 @brutalpedz - Riva del Garda is technically Germany. Most people staying there are Germans. And many "Trentinians" wished they were within borders of Germany rather than being referred to as Italians. Big Grin

 This is the 23rd year of the Bike-Magazin (Germany) Festival at Garda lake. Mountain bike trails are basically ancient hiking trails, steep and super-tech in most places. I guess more informative coverage from the event wouldn't hurt.

 @cheorch - I have heard of that from my friend who lives in Milano but comes from Madonna di Campiglio/Pinzolo.

@blacktea - my sources of info come from a Trentinian family, guy from
milano and a guy from Torino, so it's limited, but they all say there's German/Austrian wannabe vibe in Trentino. I don't give a fk, I don't live there and even if I would I would not get into such nonsense of could have would have should have. I am fortunate to have my identity issues sorted out. It was just a joke. Nothing more.

awesome, did you know that we germans ride almost the same stuff as you do? It's a long time ago that I've seen someone with bar ends and semi slicks. We do race XC or marathon just as everyone else does, even enduro and DH are the same ways..

 it's a 4 bar extravaganza! other than tube lines it seems like bike designs are starting to converge into large clusters of sameness
  • 10 0
 I was thinking the same thing. I guess there isn't a patent on it so easy to replicate, alter, paint and sell. On the positive note at least we're not in the 90's riding terrible and often unsafe frames.
  • 2 0
 fortunately the execution is still as important and variable as ever, so while (for good reason) so many bikes are horst-link now, they still don't function the same.
  • 1 0
 So true, everything seem to be 4-bar or linkage driven single pivot these days. It does work very well and is proven so I guess it's easier to start from that when designing a new bike and concentrate on the looks what for making us buy more of them.
  • 2 0
 I'm not complaining either. I just picked up a Snabb that was affordable and packed with all the features you can think of. I keep expecting Kona to switch over like Transition did. With their geo I'd expect sales to go up.
  • 2 0
 For 160mm bikes a lot of companies seem to be going with... 1. horst link suspension 2. longish effective top tubes 3. short 430mm chainstays seems like a winning combo

 First thought with that conway is damn that shock clearance is tight. Upon closer inspection it looks like it's too tight. Air can has been rubbed by frame.
  • 3 0
 Ride at your own risk.
  • 2 0
 Literally scrolled down to say the same thing, looks like the shock may have been fitted as an after thought but that definitely needs to be revisited... that much rubbing is definitely not a good thing haha!
  • 1 0
 If you look really closely it looks like the bike has been dropped/damaged so that's a possibility? My head exploded looking at the linkage which pushes on the shock from the bottom and the top.
  • 1 0
 I have the same Bike and can tell you that there is enough space. He Probably got a stone between the vivid and the frame.
The frame on the pic is from this guy:
youtu.be/BaLbA6ZFVLI
  • 1 0
 It is definitely too tight around the aircan they had to add zip ties as cheap guides so it doesn't damage the shock more.
  • 1 0
 there are gouges on the outside of the frame as well as the shock body.
  • 1 0
 @mtbman1980: The zip tie prevents the reverb cable from rubbing on the moving damper, correctly routed that wouldn't be needed.
The marks on the outside of the frame are stock. I know its kinda stupid but they sell the bike in "used raw".
Don't get me wrong, I don't want to advertise the Bike but I would like to correct wrong guesses.
  • 1 0
 @Bikerider9: there is no cable to route at this location, they all follow the downtube.
  • 1 0
 @mtbman1980: the left cable is for the back brake, the right one for the rear derailleur. The middle one for the reverb, which is routed inside the arch (on the inside wall, not internally) and goes up to the seat tube.
If you want, I can do picture from my frame.

  • 11 1
 That Drossinger!! Why would you do that, can't you just make the TT slightly higher and rotate the shock?? There used to be a saying in the UK "about as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle", never thought we would see one on a MTB
  • 5 2
 There are too many people designing and building bikes who don't have an eye for detail and what makes a good bike.
  • 2 0
 Especially if you compare it to specialized or evil who showed that a "normal looking" 160mm 29er is possible
  • 1 0
 Yeah also thought about that when I saw it. There seems to be only disadvantages to "notching" the downtube to make space for the shock. I mean all the shocks fit all the bikes in 99% of the cases so why the hole thing? Couldn't they position it differently so the shock would have plenty of space?
  • 1 0
 Yeah but then you get the look of the new Lapierre spicy and everyone will bitch about how it looks
  • 2 1
 @andnyleswillriot: That's because the spicy is fugly. If you want to see a good looking bike check out the Starling enduro bike. Dirt did a glowing review on it. IMO if it looks right (simple and clean) it probably is.
  • 1 0
 @fartymarty: cool except that bike has nothing to do with the whole top/down tube problem we're discussing here... And you're saying if it looks right it probably is? What the hell are you even talking about? Hahahah
  • 2 0
 @andnyleswillriot: Sorry I think I kinda missed the point a little but, but in a way didn't... If we start with the principle that "if it looks right it probably is" and go from there... it seems some bike designers evolve things to solve small problems and make bikes work better but end up with an ugly and complicated looking bike at the end of it. A good example of this is the Barel era Konas. They worked great and had great geometry but they got pretty ugly at the end. Then they took a step back and brought out the Process frames which look great again. I'm not saying that bikes need to be good looking to work and generally things that are less complicated have the most amount of design input to get them looking clean and simple. I am not an Apple fan (or have any of their products) but do like their "design". Sometimes you need to step away and go back to the drawing board.

 @lobohusky: I talked to one of the company engineers/marketing guys over the course of a multi day event and they seem to think REI is the golden goose. Same with MEC. Couldn't shake his opinion, doesn't understand that mtb customers rarely poke their heads inside those outlets and if they do, rarely buy a high end carbon machine from a guy who sells primarily tents. He was a pretty cool to talk to, had lots to say about the engineering process he has gone through for these bikes.

What was cool is the rear shock, that CCDB coil with a climb switch.

 @bonfire: REI seems to be leaning pretty hard into the mtb market, check out their website front page right now. I wouldn't be surprised with they retooled their stores to be more mtb focused year round instead of swapping it in and out with ski equipment like they do now (at least as my local REI's)

i'm surprised they haven't started stocking more bikepacking equipment in store already. REI + MTB = bikepacking, of course
  • 1 0
 I don't mean this in a rude way, but does anyone actually buy these in the US? I haven't seen any on the trails and nor have I seen the REI guys shredding them either. Seem like a reasonably good buy...
  • 2 0
 @bonfire: Hmm, interesting. Perhaps they think of REI as a Golden Goose is because of their market presence throughout the U.S. I mean, I personally don't think of REI first when I think of a new MTB, but I do consider them and have looked in their stores and on their website to see what they have. I'd say they are unique because they have such a variety of outdoor equipment (skiing, rock climbing, canoes, kayaks, bikes, shoes, clothes, etc.) and it's generally perceived as high-end equipment. Not only that, but their staff does seem knowledgeable from what I've gathered in my experience. So I'd say Ghost sees an opportunity to grab some outdoor enthusiasts who have some cash to spend on outdoors equipment and say, hmm, I've been thinking of getting into MTBing. It'll be interesting to see if it actually works.

@Klainmeister: I've never seen one either, but have seen some pretty nice ones on the racks at my local REI here in Portland. I think they just started selling there last year, so I wouldn't expect to see too many just yet. But time will tell.
  • 6 0
 My wife works at REI and I've seen the bikes up close. The attention to detail is there and the riot link idea is solid. The problem is you get consumers at REI who know nothing about bikes. There is a review on the site now of the Riot and the guy says it's to heavy and not as light as his hardtail. Then he complains it comes with a low end shock. It's a cane Creek dbinline for crying out loud. Just shows that the consumers who buy bikes at REI don't really know anything about bikes. That can be a good or bad thing if it leads to negative and misleading information.
  • 3 1
 @xeren: REI was doing... ok on entering the MBT market in the early 90's (although the bikes were shit) it was a start. then came board member Sally Jewel in 1996, she was elected COO and then CEO in 2005. Jewel who was born in London, is one of those hardcore advocates against bikes of any kind on trails anywhere; a total environmentalist fruitloop! So the MBT program was non existent while she was at REI especially from 2000-2013. So because of her activism, REI missed everything.
In 2013 she became obamas secretary of the interior. Now she uses the executive office to close our trails on public lands.
But after she left REI, they started re-building its MBT program.
Personally I don't think they can pull it off.
  • 1 0
 @spinto21: No LBS?
  • 2 1
 @SteveDekker: This is an interesting Point and I am intrigued to look into it. Although it seems when she was in office alot of the outreach to the MTB community was still in tact and I think company helped get quite a few trail systems in the North East protected or opened up.

When any new CEO takes over, restructuring takes place, it all depends on the support they get from the employees and community. It will be an uphill battle but I think there is something to be said about trying to attract people with lighter wallets and less machismo to the sport, the more support MTB organizations get the more access all mtbers get.

It will be interesting to see how the program plays out.

I've gotten far better service from mechanics at REI than any shop Ive been to. (Except the dudes at Jacks in Bellingham WA, those guys were ridiculously helpful when it came to where to ride on a short visit this winter)

It will be interesting to see how the program plays out.

 The elastomer damper on the Corratec is a really good idea for enduro / trailbikes. To pedal well they give up that beginning stroke suppleness that is very desirable on the descents. This copies what 99.9% of car suspension has been doing since the invention of the strut/ coilover assembly. I hope this catches on.
